Hormuud's Assault on African Peacekeepers Figure 14: African Peace Keepers Hormuud launched a scorching public campaign against the Kenyan military forces in AMISOM in late August 2019. It became demonstrably clear from this assault on African peace-keepers that the company was part of a triple alliance with Al-Shabaab and the Federal Government in Villa Somalia. In its wake, the campaign would expose the company's corporate strategies to capture and manipulate the Somali government, public institutions, diaspora, Al-Shabaab and other dark forces in the Somali underworld to pursue its interests—which worked against the public interest of the Somali people.
In late August, Hormuud issued a series of statement in social and mainstream media alleging that unspecified units of the Kenya Defense Forces in the AMISOM contingent were directly or indirectly involved in bombing and destroying its masts in Gedo region of Jubaland State.
In making this allegation, Hormuud latched on a well-heeled tactic widely used by the Al-Shabaab in its warfare against the African forces after 2012.
The strategy involved destroying telecommunication masts with the aim of paralyzing exchange of information among security officers, intelligence personnel, and residents.
